Jessika Fleck is a writer, unapologetic coffee drinker, and knitter -- she sincerely hopes to one day discover a way to do all three at once. Until then, she continues collecting vintage typewriters and hourglasses, dreaming of an Icelandic getaway, and convincing her husband they NEED more kittens. 


Jessika has lived all over the U.S. from Hawaii to Vermont, but currently calls Illinois home. She resides there with her sociology professor husband and two teens where she’s learning to appreciate the beauty in cornfields and terrifyingly large cicadas.


Jessika writes both young adult and middle grade fiction and her work leans towards the fantastical and dark with a touch of realism. Her YA fantasy, THE CASTAWAYS (Entangled Teen) is currently available as is her YA fantasy series, THE OFFERING DUOLOGY, published by Macmillan (BEWARE THE NIGHT & DEFY THE SUN). Jessika's latest publication is MOLLY AND THE TWIN TOWERS: A 9/11 SURVIVAL STORY (Capstone).
